obama, only three states permit drivers licenses for illegal immigrants but as many as 40 states are now interpreting the deferred deportation order to confer that right day make moves to pass that into law as the executive order or a change as a result of the deportation order it is a startling trend or attention is not brought to either. now let's turn to the export -- expert witness what you make of this man? has he destroyed single-hdedly whenever there was for the defense? >> he tries to find any reasonable doubt and says there is a possibility there is a psychological disorr so they could find her not guilty of premeditated murders and he is there to get a juror to think maybe there is a psychological issue we cannot grasp, he is the expert and we should rely on him cement she puts forward a self-defense claim but testifying over 18-- she never said the words you need to say with self-defense and actually said she was not in favor -- in fear. said now they bring in the expert that she is sufferingg3 from posttraumatic stress disorder so when he moved a certain way she had that figh
and secretary of state john kerry have been vigorously applying their diplomatic skills. president obama wrapped up his mideast tour. after an unannounced trip for talks with maliki, today kerry makes a trip for talks with hamid karzai. possible negotiations with theal lan, this comes as u.s. troops come close to full withdrawal. nbc's mike taibbi is in kabul with more on the visit. >> reporter: this was a share of unity today. more than just a show, because it's in the interest of both parties the karzai government and the u.s. government. for karzai to not just appear to be a leader but to actually be the leader of a functioning, independent, sovereign government on its way to being a country that can operate independent of the u.s. once combat troops are withdrawn at the end of 2014. now, they smoothed over some thorny issues here. one having to do with the transfer of bagram prison which the u.s. had run with 4,000 detainees to afghan control, complete afghan control with consultation with the u.s. to make sure high-value, high-risk detainees aren't involved in prisoner exchanges or simply r

the recession bottom in june 2009, this is how team obama measures it, federal, state, and local jobs have fallen 740,000. and i'm sorry for that. however, private sector jobs have increased 5.2 million over the exact same period, way more, making up for the slack. so once again, i argue spending cuts are pro growth. smaller government is good for the private economy. that is the true engine of economic growth. let's talk to keith and jimmy. i'm sorry, keith, the private sector jobs have outspread the public sector jobs by a huge ratio. >> are you saying there's growth now? that's good. >> i have continued to say that. >> "the wall street journal" said it would be 7.1% if it weren't for the government job cuts. government job cuts means there are fewer people who can pay money and can fail to contribute to the economy. that's a good thing, i think. >> we don't want just jobs. government can create a bunch of jobs and have people walking around parks picking up wrappers. what you want is value added economically sustainable jobs that are aren't based on taxpayer money, and we're creating re
remind the public that barack obama has stated done enacted 18 tax breaks for small business and more are on their way. business,tion big which is so programmed that many do not pay any taxes. there are tens of millions of people in this country if they paid $1 of federal income tax would have paid more dollars into the u.s. treasury than general electric, honeywell, pepco, pacific gas and electric who have made billions of dollars in profit but did not pay one dollar. there should be a taxpayer appreciation day frawley belts that taxpayers have been required because they have not organized and become powerful. i wrote 100 of them years ago. a taxpayerannounce appreciation day on april 15?" they were not been used. host: ralph nader is the author of "the seventeen solutions, bold ideas for our american future." thank you for joining us. we will look at how four houses. faye taxman is our guest. john kerry is in afghanistan and meeting with hamid karzai and talking about continued u.s. assistance to the country. there has been concern that hamid karzai may be jeopardized the the war wi
hillary clinton was doing. >> and barack obama. that was the administration's stated goal. the real answer is that the middle east, regardless of whether the united states achieves energy independence any time soon, the middle east is a geopolitical center that is not easy to pivot away from. i think that daunting list of challenges that you just ran over suggests why that is. i also think if you look at what senator-turned-secretary kerry's agenda is, you get the sense of this is still very much a political figure. he spent 29 years in the senate which prizes a kind of face-to-face diplomacy, if you will, the handshake, the look 'em in the eye. that was a mission that then senator kerry often undertook for barack obama when he was the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he went to afghanistan. he met with karzai. i think this is a somewhat familiar role for him. it's very different, by the way, than the way that hillary clinton used her time and credibility in the job. >> ifill: whether it's syria or what we just saw in afghanistan or whether it's worrying about the red li

't fall under paragraph one. i think it is better for president obama to stare into a camera and say the united states will respond to attacks on south korea with the immediate use of force. we talk like that during the cold war and we kept the peace. we don't talk like that anymore. and because of that, deterence is breaking down in asia. that's why we have had allst proble all of the problems with deter ents. >> they think they can push us out of arab why and the chinese are engaging in provocative tactics. >> so carl leighton, north korea is a country of 1.2 million people, 120,000 special operations forces. we don't know how many nukes and up to 800 medium and short range ballistic missiles. just to give everyone a sense of the military power there, and, of course, over the past six months there are a lot of tests and provications. so is this deal a sign that the united states sees war as serious possibility? >> i think so, erin. i think it's one of those moments where the united states is looking at burden sharing with its allies. so it's -- although it may be legalistic as gord
're not going to let the states do them. is it constitutional? now the advocates of prop 8 for example in california, this is the voter initiative passed with 52% of the vote in 2008. the same state that gave barack obama a majority passed this. they say yes it is constitutional. we need to make a distinction between marriage between traditional couples, because those produce children and it's important to make the distinction for that reason only. the opponents of prop 8 who have prevailed in both the lower courts say, allowing same-sex couples to get married doesn't do anything to traditional couples, it doesn't weaken marriage, it doesn't affect their marriage at all. it's more inclusive and there's no good reason not to do it. slightly different arguments on wednesday in the defense of marriage case, the federal law passed 17 years ago that says the federal government won't recognize any same-sex marriages even in the states where it's legal. the federal government says it has to have its own definition of marriage. the opponents say that doesn't make any sense constitutionally, ei
and with the department heads to do what mrs. obama asked us to do. whenever we occupy these public positions throughout the city or throughout the state or throughout the nation, we do the right thing, we keep the doors of opportunity open and enriched for everybody else. and we're already seeing it happen. yesterday i was at the luncheon for the boys and girls club, wonderful, wonderful entity that's reaching out to all of our young high school kids and make sure they're motivated to go to college. you should have heard them talk about their futures. you should also hear them ask for our help, because i know as much as anybody else that our kids will inherit the good things that we do. they will also inherit the things that we fail to do. and i'm about making sure that we fail less in the things that we're obligated to do for our generations. that's why i'm investing in education. personally, and with all of my administration, i personally adopted the 12 middle schools in this city to make sure that the truancy goes down, is not eliminated, that the kids who are in our middle schools have the hope, th
. the obama administration is shifting slowly, i cover now the state department, secretary kerry.er and they've gonee from saying, you know, syria is the congo to saying no, we have to, as kerrye says, change assad's calculation. and when-- i was on a trip with him recently.wi we went to saudi arabia, and u.a. e., and he's talking about their efforts to armt rebels in an effort to change assad's calculation, and the reason this so concerns them is the posture of staying uninvolved has left the field to the most radical elements. so we're leaving afghanistan. , one hopes, without an al qaeda presence returning there. we're leaving iraq, really without al qaeda in iraq being strong. butqa the emergence of a terrort state or a state which has broken into pieces that has aen terrorist component right on the board of border of israel would really be a terribly challenging situation. and so i think the americans are coming to it late, but they're-- they recognize that much of the problem. returning to iraq, the problem is iran, with maliki's concurrence, is arming the assad regime as fast as it ca
. the story, secretary of state, representing a country which has been in retreat from iraq. obama made a decision to leave no residual american military in iraq, which essentially would have zero influence. we have zero influence. that is why iraqi sees america as relevant. obama talks about the tide of war receding. side of war is rising and america is receding. it's irrelevant. that is the story of visit. >> shannon: also a stop in afghanistan. there has been discussion whether we were on the same page with leaders there in afghanistan. something we said today, we are on the same page speaking with president karzai. what do you make of that? >> karzai apologized to what he said when he suggested that somehow the u.s. is involved with the taliban. and all of their al-qaeda links. to somehow subvert his government. the reality is -- this is something that was confirm today by secretary kerry, the united states want to be sure there is stability, not only in afghanistan but in the region with regard to keeping terrorists at bay. part of that equation is election next year. they want to
, that's how secretary of state john kerry described president obama's first presidential visit to israel. the white house had set expectations low, but is there was one surprise, when the president persuaded israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to apologize to turkey over mistakes that led to the death of activists on a flotilla bound for gaza. let me bring in congressman elliott angle. good to see you. >> thank you. >> congressman mike rogers had a very different take than john kerry about the president's trip. let me play it for you. >> i thought the trip was a disappointment for us. i think the president squandered great opportunity to show leadership and push them in a place where they could get an agreement out of a meeting, didn't get it, got a speech, get to some agreement on the path forward on syria, didn't get that. >> so from your perspective, congressman, a disappointment, a success? somewhere in between? >> it was a great success. i was with the president. i flew with him on air force one, traveled with him. he was treated like a rock star in israel. >> how interesting,
in the state of ohio or the state of virginia. i recall a statement by president obama in 2009 to democrats that it made no sense to put more money in medicaid without first having reform. that's one of the statements i agree with him on, but that seems to be exactly what we're doing. the other point i always like to make is, this -- people forget, this is taxpayer dollars, which it's taxpayer dollars from the federal government or taxpayer dollars from the state government. it's the same taxpayers across the country. >> neil: to your point, whatever you get, be careful what you wish to. i don't want to get into the details of the plan to cover illegals with health care, but gets to the bigger point of added spending. the architects of the plan were saying, alet more problems than we envisioned. i'm paraphrasing but you get the gist. the taxes, fees, add ons, drop in parttime workers who lost their health insurance and other workers who lost their job because of companies taking on the held insurance is more than the strongest opponents imagined. >> that's exactly right. if you recall, spea
. in this country, suddenly, barack obama, the president of the united states is viewed in these polls and gets to play two roles in robin hood. he gets to be the sheriff of knottingham and prince, but the fact is this government is capable, i think is pretty clear, with the come pensing policy. we're taxing 2.3% on medical devices and we have 600 billion in taxes directly the beginning. year because of obamacare and no one voted on it. >> megyn: they want more. >> and this president says he wants another trillion dollars and the democrats passed that budget. you can dress it up whatever you want, the fact is it's c confiscatory and the government rather than being reined in, we know where to get it and we'll spend it any way we damn well please and you're going to pay for it. >> megyn: over in cyprus, they decided at the end of the day, this weekend, they decided we are going to take it from the rich and ought to shut the other people up and i've got to run. >> quickly shall the united nations wants to do a transaction tax on the whole world and there will never be a vote on the american peopl
't invite him to cpac. people talk about medicaid expansion and the hug with president obama, but people at cpac talked about was the gun control issue, he's too far off the reservation about that. i think it's a sign that if you're a governor of a blue state like new jersey and you're a republican, you need to make some accommodation. >> in pennsylvania, you'll see the southern states isolated on this issue. the southern senators democrats or republicans are going to be increasingly isolated on this issue. if you're in pennsylvania or new jersey, you're going to want to sign on to that. >> we have to take a break. when we come back nothing says procrastination like a good, old-fashioned votvote-a-rama on vacation eve. ♪ i am stuck on band-aid brand ♪ ♪ 'cause germs don't stick on me ♪ [ female announcer ] band-aid brand has quiltvent technology with air channels to let boo boos breathe.
